To Dream, To Love, To Create
We welcome the New Year with a Full Moon in Cancer. The bright light shines on us to care for one another and to take care of ourselves as well. We’re called to open up to our feelings, not hide from them. We’re also called to be open and honest with things we don’t want to deal with, things that make us feel scared, uncomfortable, confused, and not able to trust.
Cancer energy hides feelings deeply within sensory experiences and creates patterns to protect itself from pain. If we’re to heal ourselves and our world around us, we must do the work of opening up to our fears, feel them, see them, and heal them. This energy in particular needs a very safe space to open up in.
Cancer is a very sensitive energy and works in the realms of symbols, feelings and the senses. The five basic physical senses – sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste – as well as family patterns and DNA, respond beautifully to the healing power of the higher vibrations of beauty, sound, color, light, scent, and touch. These healing properties are even more intense with this Full Moon.
Our emotions and our deep connections to the ancient wisdoms of our Divine Feminine are intertwined with our deep and ancient connections to Mother Earth. As we care for ourselves and others, we must also care for our Mother Earth. This is an important message from the Cancer Full Moon.
This Full Moon reminds us that our Earth selves are as magical, wise and powerful as our Soul selves. We begin to heal when we remember that our human selves matter, too, and that we must care for the bodies our souls live in as well as the planet we live on and all the non-human souls. Magic and beauty happen when we remember that everything is connected and flows in the divine matter that is love.
All of the Capricorn in this Full Moon energy (the Sun, Saturn, Venus, Pluto, and Lilith) also reminds us that we need to be responsible for how we heal. Create sacred space, call on our allies from other realms to help us transform, transmute, and elevate our vibrations. Ask for help from our allies to keep our “waste” energy from flying all over the place and landing on others and on the Earth. To heal, to release negative energies without doing so in a sacred way that keeps them from harming others is irresponsible. As we evolve, we must take full responsibility for all we do.
This energy begins to support us more powerfully to explore the realms beyond our basic physical senses. Like the “in-between” spaces where love and the truth of the multi-verse are. And the realms of vibration where light, sound, aroma, and touch exist at a high frequency so we are healed, transformed and elevated by them at our energetic levels. In part, so we can bring life to our dreams on Earth.
The blending of all the astrological energies reminds us to be open to new possibilities. Humans experience what they believe they can experience. We continue to be supported by magical realms to dream, bring our visions of the beautiful world we desire into our conscious minds and hearts. Our faith in the pursuit of our dreams will allow our imaginations to manifest our visions as the multiverse keeps giving us opportunities to transform and manifest. We are at the precipice of a new vibration, a new step in our evolution. The fear based world we’ve known is shifting away and we are the dreamers and the manifesters of the new world. What do you want it to look, feel, be like? The dream is ours to create.
